Just out of curiosity, since we just took the midterm, when the test says "list all formal charges," would it be fine/acceptable just to write the formal charge next to each atom in a Lewis structure? It'd take a long time to list out the calculations for each atom in the Lewis structure...
When we were in discussion and we were practicing doing lewis structures, we usually just found the formal charge in our head instead of doing the formal charge equation for every one of them. It was much faster and took less time from all the other problems. Also in the review session during class on Monday Lavelle said himself that it would be faster to do it in our head so I think you should be fine.
